Slav Trap

      Meeting the Q-Gambit with 1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 seems to be pretty popular these days. One idea is that Black can get his QB out quickly, but it needs to be played at the right time or Black faces difficulties as seen in this game. We’ve all seen horror stories involved when one side grabs the b-Pawn early in the opening, but in the variations in this game, I think White can get away with it because even though he’s a little behind in development, he’s got a P or two and Black’s K is exposed.

      Black played 3…Bf5 thinking it was OK on general principles… it develops a piece that’s normally is a problem in the QGD.
